What does 8tree do?

8tree is a world leader in portable 3D optical surface inspection tools that are used in a variety of industries.  Our tools solve chronic problems in aerospace manufacturing and aviation maintenance, simply and elegantly.  Our vision is to make complex 3D measurement systems unbelievably easy to use by stressing user-experience as much as technical performance.  This approach has resonated very strongly with industry.

The world’s most recognized airlines, MROs and aerospace manufacturers now use our tools to improve operational efficiency while making airframes more efficient and safer.  In addition, global OEMs like Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier have endorsed the performance of 8tree’s products.

Where does the magic happen?

Founded in 2012 in the US and Germany, 8tree is a diverse team of about 15 passionate individuals – and growing!  Our primary global offices are in Konstanz, Germany (R&D/Manufacturing & Customer engineering support), Dallas, Texas, USA and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Customer Engineering support offices) and Southern California, USA (Commercial operations).

What skills do we look for?

Deep cross-disciplinary expertise and a relentless focus on anticipating and satisfying customer needs is the underpinning of 8tree’s growing success in the global market.

Our technology development includes all aspects of vision-based systems – optics, electronics, firmware, software, hardcore mathematics, 3D geometries – combined with a generous dose of cloud- computing, augmented-reality, drones, machine learning…and more.  All the technical complexity comes together seamlessly in an easy and fun to use inspection tool.

Our business and support operations demand strategic customer-centric thinking and excellent communication skills.

8tree’s approach is new territory for a 3D scanner – no one is an expert.  Join us and you’ll have fun learning on the job and an opportunity to succeed by applying those lessons as you go.
